forgot to mention the other day about that Trader Joe's horseradish. before using it on my steak tartare the other day, I decided to test it for hotness so I'd know how much to add. I guess I kind of expected it to be like sushi-restaurant "wasabi" or something, which I can just eat by itself. so I sipped the liquid and got some of the ground root as well. instant pain. the insult to my tongue was so harsh, I swallowed it and instead spread the joy to my throat and stomach. almost threw up on the spot. had to sit down on the grass next to the sidewalk and prepare for the worst. eventually the feeling passed, and I continued on. that is some powerful stuff. a little goes a long way.
